Information about the evolution of our brain…

The hemispheres of what was to evolve into the human brain began to develop 250 million years ago.(1)   100 million years ago they developed lateral specialization, and very slowly began to grow in size.  65 million years ago protohominid brain volume had reached 30 cubic centimeters, 20 million years ago, 200 cubic centimeters.  Between 18 and 7 million years ago, the brain did not grow at all, and by 4 million years ago it had grown to 350 cubic centimeters.  Then, after millions of years of no growth, or exceedingly slow growth, the human brain has quadrupled in size in the past 4 million years, to its present average of 1,360 cubic centimeters. (2)

In the big picture, that amount of growth in such a short period of time is phenomenal.  There is much debate as to why.  We are conscious beings with amazing abilities to create and manifest.  I believe our brain is the receiver, translator and generator behind much of this ability.

All that said, here is what I have been up to in regards to fine tuning the structures of the brain.  Below I have listed some of the layers from outside to inside starting from the top of the head:

  1. Skin and subcutaneous fat
  2. Muscles and their wrappings
  3. Bone
  4. Dura (the wrapping of the brain and spinal cord, includes the falx and tentorium which are deep support membranes)

From here we get into the many layers of the brain…

Due to impact and injury our 14 – 16 pound head can end up with deep strains and restrictions which diminish the flow of blood and lymph in and out of the cranium.  Also, the bones can loose their flexibility, the joints between bones can become restricted, nerves, arteries and deep enfolded membranes can become tight. This can cause low energy, headaches and discomfort throughout the entire body. The brain has a large role in managing the health of our 70-100 trillion cells that make up the human body.

I have been having great success restoring proper function to the structures that make up our head.  There are many areas and handles that allow for access to the nerves, arteries, bones, joints and membranes.  My experience is showing that when the cranium functions as the designer intended, people feel better, become more aligned in gravity and have deeper access to their bodies inherent ability to heal and thrive.
